This page has been created to provide local (parish and town) councils with information related to the coronavirus. It should not be used as a substitute for government advice, however, there are some practicalities specific to local councils where we hope this information will help you plan ahead and manage your risks. If you would like further advice and support on any of these topics for your local council then please contact your local county association.

This is a fast-moving situation and we will be updating this page regularly.


The prime minister announced on 31 October 2020 that new national restrictions will come into force in England from 5 November. Guidance has been produced from the government and we will communicate any further guidance or changes to legislation through our newsletter (sign-up) and on this webpage.


The coronavirus situation is fast-moving and there is an increasing amount of misinformation online. We should be using government advice to inform decisions and be checking that advice regularly.
